Mississippi Lt. Gov. Amy Tuck says she has no interest in being appointed to the U.S. Senate.
Tuck attended a performance at the Roxy Theatre in Newton Thursday night. Her friend, Sen. Terry Burton, has a leading role in the play.
Tuck told Newscenter 11 she is not interested in serving in Sen. Trent Lott's seat until a special election is held Nov. 4, 2008, nor in Cong. Chip Pickering's seat, should he be appointed to the Senate position.
"I have been honored to serve at lieutenant governor of this state and I look forward to working as a special assistant to Dr. Foglesong at Mississippi State University," Tuck said.
Tuck is going to the position at her alma mater after her term ends in January. She served two terms as lieutenant governor and was not eligible to seek the office again. Tuck previously was a state senator and secretary of the Mississippi Senate.
